Shannon Systems LLC was founded in April 1999, in Boston, Massachusetts,USA as a privately held software development company providing customdeveloped utilities, programs and data conversion software. One of ourproducts, “The B2BGateway”, was designed to provide organizations with aneasy solution to the complexities of EDI. Simply put, data would be sent to ourorganization over the internet, where it would be converted and sent toanother organization in a different format. Eventually, people using “TheB2BGateway” began to refer to the company as B2BGateway and we now dobusiness as B2BGateway.Although we didn’t invent Cloud Computing, we were a very early adopter,starting services in 1999. Our data transfer network has evolved over the yearsto provide optimal performance and maximized up-time. We have grown fromthat first client trading with their first trading partner, to servicing thousands ofclients around the world.
